The romance not only involves Helen and Alistair, but also the bond that develops between Alistair To Beguile a Beast takes a tried and true romance theme and does it justice. I guess I am just getting older, but lately I really appreciate the idea of a hero or heroine who has children meeting someone who embraces those kids and makes them part of their life in all ways, founding their own parental bond.
In this case, I loved how this relationship develops between Alistair and the children. They were just possessions to him. Whereas Alistair does spend time with the kids and genuinely cares about them. I think the subject matter might have been a bit more dicey for me. I understand her actions were those of a young, starstruck girl-woman, and she fully accepted the accountability for those actions.
The one good thing that came out of it was her children, and she decides to make tomorrow a different and better day for herself and her children, which definitely shows character in a person. I mean, he really rubs it in her face. Considering that his past is hardly lily white a man who admittedly has slept with prostitutes another ick factor for me , it was sort of like kicking a puppy. I know part of his issues were jealousy because he will never be a duke or have the powerful, accepted status in society as a duke.
And also, his issues with his disfigurement. For all my disappointment with him, I did love how he rallies around Helen in her time of need and works to ensure the safety of her children from their father. The other issue I had was I guess I expected the duke to be a bit more sinister. Stylistically, I would have liked a little more Gothic flavor here. The book sort of begs for it, really. I just felt like I wanted something deeper, more intense in this novel. Maybe more angst and flair than it had.
Having said that, I do like the crafty way that Alistair deals with the situation. I love a hero who has as much or even more brains than brawn and uses them to solve a tricky problem. Despite my misgivings, I found this to be a pleasant, highly enjoyable read. The powerful passion between Helen and Alistair made for good reading, along with the relationship between Alistair and the kids.
As before, Hoyt sets an authentic historical tone that really works for this reader. The story of the beast finding love with the beauty will always be timeless and beloved to this die-hard fairy tale lover, and Elizabeth Hoyt gives it a different spin and gives it justice overall.
